The Surety & Fidelity Association of America (SFAA) is a District of Columbia non-profit corporation whose members are engaged in the business of suretyship worldwide. Member companies collectively write the majority of surety and fidelity bonds in the United States. SFAA is licensed as a rating or advisory organization in all states, as well as in the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, and it has been designated by state insurance departments as a statistical agent for the reporting of fidelity and surety experience. SFAA represents its member companies in matters of common interest before various federal, state, and local government agencies.
Local Surety Associations (LSAs) have been formed in most states to address local surety bond interests. To contact an LSA, or to become involved in an LSA, view the LSA Officers Directory.
A Surety Bond Producer (a.k.a. agent or broker) is the first person to contact for a surety bond. A producer will guide you through the bonding process and assist you in establishing a business relationship with a surety company. To locate an NASBP member producer in your state visit www.nasbp.org and select “Find a Producer.”
